Fending Off Mass Arbitration: Preventive and Responsive Defense Strategies
Friday, March 10, 2023 | 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM MST

Mass arbitration is a new tactic of plaintiffs’ firms: File hundreds or thousands of arbitration demands against a company simultaneously in hopes of leveraging the prospect of arbitration fees to force a settlement. Massive fees, unfavorable processes for mass arbitration filings, and a judiciary that has been largely unreceptive to companies’ challenges to such filings have emboldened the plaintiffs’ bar. Indeed, threats of initiating mass arbitration filings alone have extracted eight- and nine-figure settlements from some companies.

This panel will discuss the development of this phenomenon following U.S. Supreme Court precedent blessing arbitration clauses and class action waivers in consumer and employment agreements, best practices for efficiently managing mass arbitrations, recent court challenges to mass arbitration filings, and how companies can revise their arbitration provisions to mitigate the risks of mass arbitration.
